16-year Ishan Shah was on the Bay Area’s premier news station this morning. He said his school let him skip first period for the interview.
I think that makes it a clean sweep of the local newscasts for Shah, who plans to run for City Council next year after he turns 18. He’s also been on Fox news and some BBC radio program.
Shah was at the Fremont Citizens Network get together last night featuring Anu Natarajan. Shah gave his two cents frequently. He lost me at one point when he started talking about a hole that fecal matter comes out of. If memory serves, he was talking some dilapidated section of Mission San Jose High School.
Ishan might be the most polite city council candidate ever. When former council candidate Alan Stirling, wearing overalls and red, white and blue, hi-top sneakers, walked in to the full house last night at the Warm Springs Cabana Club, Shah gave up his seat.
Later he greeted, former mayor “Mr. Morrison.”
The KTVU segment isn’t online yet. Below is a CBS report on him.
